A summer after qualifying for the boys’ Suffolk County golf championship, Rosa Jones has not stopped honing her craft.

Since June 30th she has played in five tournaments, making the cut in four of them. At the Island’s End Tournament she finished in 11th place, tied for 3rd at the Wind Watch Country Club Tournament with a score of 88, took 7th at the Pine Ridge Tournament, and tied for 5th at the Pine Hills Tournament with a score of 80. The only cut she missed was at the New York City Championship on July 21st, despite the fact that she shot a blistering 79.

She currently stands in 11th place in the Player of the Year rankings for the age 12-18 Long Island girls division.

Back on June 6th, Newsday‘s Mark Hermann referenced Rosa’s multi-faceted athleticism when she competed in two postseason events, in two different sports, in one day this past spring:

Golf experts say that versatility is good for young athletes, particularly with their golf games. Rosa Jones was a keen example of that recently, in one day. In the morning, she played for Stony Brook School in the Suffolk boys high school golf championship, then rushed to Copiague High School for the county girls track championships, where she ran the 200 and 400.
